Full Title: "Puzzles, Patterns and Problem Solving: Helping Teens Build Computational Thinking Skills”
Meeting ID: 333 390 170
Summary: Computational Thinking (CT) is a process
that helps us create possible solutions to complex problems--
in other words, a skill that teens will need to navigate their
personal and work lives in the 21st century. From cooking
to coding, many everyday skills, hobbies and
occupational pursuits involve CT. In this interactive
webinar, we will define
CT and explore its four cornerstones. We will begin to think
about how to help teens build CT literacy.
· Understand Computational Thinking as it relates
to educational and career paths for teens.
· Explore the four cornerstones of Computational Thinking.
· Think about how to help teens build CT literacy.
Presenter: Anna Foote, Youth and School Services Consultant for
